The CNN Philippines debates are to be held  on February 27 for the presidential candidates and on February 26 for the vice-presidential bets, but this early the son of the late dictator President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. informed the news network that he cannot attend citing conflict of schedule.

Conclict of schedule was the same alibi Bongbong pushed when he skipped a forum organized by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkasters ng Pilipinas (KBP).

In shying away from GMA 7’s The Jessica Soho Presidential Candidates Interview, Bongbong claimed the broadcast journalist, who anchored the program, was biased against the Marcoses.

“Former Senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. is the lone presidential hopeful who will not attend the debates for now due to conflict of schedule,” said CNN Philippines in an on Monday, February 14.

Bongbong’s running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte under the UniTeam banner, will not also attend, CNN Philippines said.
